Luxemburgo jailed, fined

Rio de Janeiro, July 5 (AFP): Former Brazil coach Wanderley Luxemburgo was jailed for five years and three months and fined 479,100 reals ($ 170,000) for tax fraud Saturday.

Luxemburgo would serve his sentence under special conditions allowing him to work during the day before returning to sleep in prison.

The lawyer said his client would appeal against the sentence. He was named Brazil coach after the 1998 World Cup and sacked in October 2000.
